With the recent Provincial announcement restoring film production in Manitoba, The WFG is gearing back up to a return to equipment rentals and services. This will be done safely in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all WFG Production Equipment and Facilities Rentals must be booked Monday to Friday, NO LATER than 48 Business Hours in ADVANCE. The earlier, the better. As the Artspace Building is closed to visitors until further notice, advance booking is the ONLY way we can currently fulfill your needs. No last minute bookings can be considered. No unannounced visits for immediate bookings can be considered. All rentals must be booked 48 Hours in advance and arrangements must be made to pick up the gear in the Artspace lobby at a specific day/time and returned in the same way. Limited access to WFG services such as the studio and editing suites will be considered, but safety protocols must be strictly observed.

We wish to remind all WFG members wanting to make films to adhere to strict protocols. Please familiarize yourself with the Manitoba Media Production Industry Safety and Health Guide HERE. Updates could still be made to this document, so WFG members must read thoroughly and understand their responsibilities. As well, watch for updates to COVID-19 Safety and Health resources and information at the On Screen Manitoba website on the COVID-19 Information & Resources page HERE.

For inquiries regarding advance bookings, please contact WFG Technical and Equipment Manager Dylan Baillie at
